Carriage roads to close temporarily
Bar Harbor, ME - The carriage road system in Acadia National Park will be closed to all users until the roads thaw sufficiently to allow use without causing damage. The closure began on March 9, 2012, and is expected to last at least two weeks. Spring thawing causes the carriage roads to become soft. Walking, bicycling, or riding horses on them under these conditions can cause significant damage that is costly to repair. If you find a road posted, please respect the request to wait for drier conditions. If a road is not posted where you enter it, but seems so soft that you are sinking in and leaving tracks, don't go on it. Help protect these historic roads, and wait until they dry out.
To check on current conditions, call Acadia National Park at 288-3338 and press "0," or go to Acadia's website at www.nps.gov/acad.
